Swedish band Grund touts a haunting rock pull throughout “Drömd och glömd.” The Gothenburg-based quartet crafts ample mystique with an organ-laden glow and dynamic guitars, ranging from dexterous energy to contemplative dreaminess. A stirring melodic shift, just prior to the first minute’s conclusion, eases back into the vocals’ serene push as the track’s consuming development starts to show.
Eerie keys envelop into the third minute, capturing the self-described “nightmarish” soundscape, as intended. The escalating percussive pit-patter and understated vocals send chills here, driving into a fervent rise within the intensified vocals and atmospheric instrumentation. Grund thoroughly compels with “Drömd och glömd.”
